Chad Kroeger Colaborates

Posted on February 12, 2008

Got this email in today from our friend Kirsten Daniells (remember her from previous Nickelback updates? Sure you do.)

"The Chad Kroeger/Santana colaboration is god-damned BRILLIANT.

Change of style for Chad, no angry growly singing of lyrics, more of a maple syrup over warm pancakes outpouring.

The track starts of in Santana's inimitable style but as soon as Chad starts in with the lyrics this track could very easily be mistaken for a pure Nickelback creation.

I swear, if these lyrics were written with one particular lady in mind then in my opinion, she's just about the luckiest lady on the planet right now.

Since the moment I spotted you
Like walking round with little wings on my shoes
My stomach's filled with the butterflies..and its alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never going to come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied
Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue tied
Turns out everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say "why don't you and I get together and take on the world and be together forever"
Heads we will and tails we'll try again
So I say why don't you and I hold each other and fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
Cause without you they're never going to let me in
When's this fever going to break?
I think I've handled more than any man can take
I'm like a love-sick puppy chasing you around
And it's alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never going to come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I lied

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue tied
Turns out everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say "why don't you and I get together and take on the world and be together forever"
Heads we will and tails we'll try again
So I say why don't you and I hold each other and fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
Cause without you they're never going to let me in

And slowly I begin to realize this is never going to end
Right about the same you walk by
And I say "Oh here we go again"

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue tied
Turns out everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say "why don't you and I get together and take on the world and be together forever"
Heads we will and tails we'll try again
So I say why don't you and get together and fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
Cause without you they're never going to let me in

(repeat to fade)


Regards, as ever - Kirsten Daniells."
